    What are you working on?

    I'm ready to get going on something. It's mid November. So do I start a Christmas quilt? Keep working on multiple projects already started? What are you planning on for the rest of November and then December? Hand applique? Paper piecing? Something easy and quick? Presents?

    I sandwiched a quilt to get it ready for quilting. I ironed Hobbs 80/20 batt on the floor so I probably will wait until my muscles to recover before quilting.

    I am working on The Splendid Sampler quilt blocks. This is a guild project - we each bought the book and are working at our own pace. I am doing all the blocks in shades of blue using light blue as a unifying (background) fabric in the majority of blocks. I have about 20 completed. There are some in the book that I don't care for, so I am substituting my own blocks. So far, I like working on this project. 6 inch blocks, no two alike, this will keep my interest for quite a while...at least I hope it will!

    I just finished 3 tote bags my sister asked me to make. I'm working on 8 more for Christmas gifts. I also have a Christmas panel I've been wanting to do, but can't seem to get to it. Our son had a change in plans, so I just found out we're hosting Thanksgiving for 10, so my dining room, which is my sewing room, needs to be cleaned out! Guess I'd better get busy!!

    I need to bind 2 quilts I've made for my DS's MIL's grand daughters, and need to plan a boy one for a grandson to be of hers! I'm afraid I have a full time job on my hands with her family! Ha! Plus, I have a grandchild on the way myself, so...on and on it goes!

    I'm waiting for a quilt to be returned from my LA so I'm in between projects right now. Finished all my Board swap projects that I am participating in. I have enough fabric left over from a kit to do some other kind of quilt. I might do the Zig Zag Zoom pattern with the extra. Going to explore that tomorrow...

    Of course you have time for a Christmas quilt. I started cutting this yesterday and this is what I've got so far. I should get the top done tomorrow.Name:  20181114_221347_resized.jpg

Size:  345.1 KBI found this here on Qulit Board. Christmas ribbon, the thread is just a couple of days old. The top 5 rows are together and the bottom ones are just pinned on the design board. The challenge is if you get a directional pattern for several of the fabrics. I tried to stay with metallic Christmas print.

    after my machine quilt guild lunch tomorrow, I plan to dig into tons of projects that have been sitting, "breathing" for the last 2 yrs while I spent all my quilting time doing customer work--I get to work on my own stuff for 7 whole weeks! (around holidays with family).

    I got too many irons in the fire, again! But in my defense, they are different skills to avoid boredom. I'm doing an Elizabeth Hartman's Awesome Ocean for piecing fun, Snow Ladies for embroidery fun, a DiFord antique wedding quilt for applique fun, a Quilt of Valor for scrap piecing fun & charity, and a baby quilt due back from the LA for a gift. Oh, and I better finish those two Christmas stockings for the grands. But nothing has a deadline, so there is no stress.....just busy, busy, busy.

    I am about 4 days from finishing a lap quilt made for a friend using his crown royal bags. Hard part was making it a cabin kinda quilt without too much purple, so it would go with their log cabin home.

    Striving to finish my 2018 projects before 2019 sneaks up...our modern quilt guild did Jen Kingwell’s Long Time Gone and it took me forever to pick a sashing...all of the blocks have been completed just need to assemble. Name:  F7771365-EE53-4BD9-AD10-8A7EBE16C761.jpeg

    I also jumped on board with Riley Blake’s quilt along “Meet the Makers” and just have the Alternate blocks to construct...all 25 of them but this wasn’t on my 2018 list of projects so I’m not stressed in getting this one done...(yet).

    I finally finished quilting my version of Hanging gardens this week! I did QAYG on the large blocks then sewed blocks together in strips. Then I sewed the strips together. It’s very large & far from perfect, but it’s for me so I don’t care about the imperfections. Now I have to bind it. I need to get going since it’s plopped on my dining room table & I'm hosting our family dinner next week! I have my machines & all the ‘stuff’ I use for quilting set up in my dining room, so I have to get that cleared out. What a chore!

    I am working on a quilt, but will put that aside when I decide what to make for my 4 young nieces. I'm thinking robes this year out of cotton velour. However, I am a sucker for the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt projects - so will probably find time for that also.

    I have a Christmas quilt from last year that I still haven't quilted! My FMQ skills aren't the best. I'm also piecing another one for Christmas. I really need to practice my FMQ more so I can get things done!

    I decided I needed a quilt to sleep under at my quilt retreats so jumped into my scrap stash and pulled out all bright colored 5" precuts and anything fabrics that were at least 5" by 10" as I need 2 of each color 5 x 5. Pulled out enough plus a few extra just in case. Then I pulled out my Shop Hop white and black from 2016 as I've never used them. Found a pattern in my Pat Speth book called Millinium Star and decided on that pattern instead of Tillie's Treasures which I'd made for a friend this past summer. Got everything starched and pressed, cut, marked, etc. Have all the units made, binding is made but now I need to put this project aside and get back to the quilt machine with a quilt that has been sitting on it almost finished. Down to the last 2 set of borders/sashings and get it finished and off the frame. And of course I have this diamond logcabin on the design wall that's been waiting to be finished for 2 years but can't decide how to finish the corners. Will have to contact the designer on how to go about making the sunray corners. The math on that one has me stumped..........reason why its been an UFO for so long. So that's what I'm up to today.................plus I cut out a skirt to make myself and its just waiting for me to get off my duff and stitch it up too. My mojo has been lagging lately.
